    Beautiful beach...
    This beach is located just opposite The Promenade. As the name describes-The Rock Beach,its full of rocks and one has to be careful while going down to the beach.. It's clean and really beautiful.. Infact the whole White Town is very beautiful, well decorated and neat and clean.

    It's very nice place. Most beach items are products of weathering and erosion. Over the years, water and air wear out on earth. The continuous action of waves hitting rocky cliffs, for example, can cause some rocks to explode. Larger stones can be worn in the city into smaller pieces of sand.

    Good option for an early morning or evening walk/stroll. One a can easily spend couple of hours walking from one side of beach near to the Mahatma statue to the other end. Vehicles are prohibited in the road and the bye roads are packed with bike parking. Visiting the place on a self driven car is not practical as the approach roads are crowed and narrow.

The beach is hardly 500 Mtrs from the railway station but a bit far from the bus station. One is not allowed to swim in any of the beaches in pondicherry unlike Goa.

NOTE
1) Come early morning or evening for a walk
2) French colonial vibe is more interesting than the beach itself
3) Autos are costly
4) KBS is a good place to have some tea/coffee/snacks/cakes etc at budget friendly price

You cant miss rock beach while in Pondicherry, it is adjacent to french quarters and offers great view of sunrise. It great for a stroll during all times of the day. Clearly the most frequented beach by locals a tourists, I wish more effort can be put to keep it clean.

It is not a typical beach with sand and seashore. Nice place to visit. Come here in the evening, sit and relax. We had a fun taking stroll around. There are lot of cafes/ restaurants nearby.

I would not really call this place a beach. It is mostly a pile of black rocks and a dumping ground for rubbish. It’s filthy dirty and not somewhere anyone would want to hang out. Why the Indian authorities don’t get this problem sorted out I have no idea. It’s literally a disgrace the way they allow people to dump rubbish and make no attempt to clean up the area. Do not believe any claims that Pondy Beach is a tourist destination; the town is quite nice but the beach is literally a dump.

Rock beach act as hotspot in Pondicherry as all the hotels and cafes are surrounded within it's vicinity. And most of the locals come here to walk along the seaside as it's a vehicle free zone.

Nice place to roam around but very crowded during weekends. Swimming in the beach is not allowed at night but you can roam around. Safe for walking.
